bmo harris reset account

I have a checking acocunt with BMO Harris and the account won't sync.  I've tried deactivating the online account in Quicken, but it says to contact the bank.  I've tried to reset the account and it says to contact Quicken Support.  There are no specific error codes with these failures.  another account with BMO syncs just fine.

    What is that exact message text, again?
    I think, unless you have recurring bill pay transactions set up at the bank's website and you do not plan on reconnecting your account to Quicken, you can ignore this message and go ahead with deactivation.

    If that doesn't do the trick, I'd say it's time to chat with Quicken Support or call them on the
    phone and request help. They can look at a log file on your computer to determine what's going on and help you solve the problem.

    Quicken Support:

    BMO changed their online banking platform. Between an outage they just resolved and not following the instructions to convert to the new platform, somewhere therein likely contains the means to restore your connectivity.  The one thing I did notice on my first EWC download after following the BMO instructions and then switching from Web Connect is that pending transactions in my checking account are being downloaded; then today the final cleared transactions downloaded again.
